Full Screen (text) Writing Environment

I had mentioned a couple of alternatives for those that might like to try WriteRoom©, but are running the MS Windows Operating System. I had the opportunity to try “JDarkRoom”, and “Dark Room” on my Windows XP Pro desktop PC recently. Sadly, for whatever reason, I wasn’t able to get JDarkRoom to work, there appeared to be a lot of source files in the download but the actual Jdarkroom.jar file itself appeared to be missing? I was able to get “Dark Room” to function, after downloading and installing MS .Net framework of course. It had the look and feel of WriteRoom in general, but I honestly didn’t feel as comfortable with it as I do with WriteRoom, but then I really didn’t spend a lot of time with it. Still, if you’re using Windows, and in my opinion, Dark Room is your best bet for a full screen, distraction free, writing environment.
